Practical innovation saves
time and manpower
The technically advanced and patented Copal C1 unloads loose loaded boxes at high speed from a container. The boxes are palletized to a height of 1.80 metres at the back of the machine.
Your container is quickly emptied and palletized at an average speed of 1,800 boxes an hour without your employees bearing any physical loads. A top speed of 3,600 boxes an hour is possible depending on the dimensions and stacking pattern of the boxes. So the Copal C1 not only saves you time but also manpower.
The operator can operate the machine entirely from within a comfortable cabin. The manipulator’s controls are designed so that the operator can perform all necessary operations with joysticks, supported by an advanced PLC control system. The C2 is driven into the container in its entirety in order to unload and palletize the boxes. The system automatically corrects for differing levels between the container and forwarding floors.
The advanced lifting technique ensures that there is up to 350 kg lifting power available. The machine is provided with various laser sensors which monitor all movements made by the manipulator. The Copal C1 is fitted with cameras so that the whole operation can be seen at once.
Special software has been designed for the Copal C1 Container Unloader & Palletizer. For instance the boxes can be placed on the pallets in any desired stacking pattern, with a choice of euro or industrial pallets.
Repetitive operations have been extensively automated. The machine continuously measures distances in the available space, preventing damage. The operator can control the system using two joysticks while seated in a comfortable chair. The operator can monitor the entire process on a screen.
Depending on box size and stack pattern, a top speed of 3,600 boxes per hour is possible. So the machine saves a lot of time and physical exertion. The Copal Container Unloader & Palletizer does the job in less than half the time saving 75% of costs. The C1 also makes it possible to greatly reduce numerous other costs.
You make use of suitable grippers such as the Multigripper, Frontgripper, Topgripper or Pullplate, depending on the goods you are unloading with the Copal C1. The vacuum units place the goods quickly and safely on the roller conveyor. The vacuum units are also interchangeable.
The Copal C1 can be used in every logistical centre where completely floor loaded standard and high cube containers can be immediately unloaded. For instance cold stores, warehouses and distribution centres. The C1 is provided standard with buffer space for empty and full pallets.
The Copal C1 can be expanded with among other things:
The Topgripper picks up the boxes from the top side with height-correcting suction arms. For the top row of boxes, immediately under the container roof, the Topgripper makes use of additional horizontally placed suction arms, after which the boxes are placed on the conveyor belt. A second version has also been developed and patented, the so-called Pullplate, which supports the cartons on the underside. The Pullplate is used for specific goods. The C1 can also be fitted with the Multigripper and the Frontgripper.

The C1 is an intelligent machine, solidly built and needs little maintenance. The machine can be connected to WMS systems.
Extra buffer space is provided for in the Copal C1 for empty and full pallets. This capacity enlargement increases the productivity and flexibility of the system even more.
The Copal C1 is patented and CE and TÜV certified. The innovative unloading system pays itself back within two years when used for about eight hours per working day.
